"I try and be a servant leader. My role is to help everyone else shine. I practice empathy as much as possible. Some people think that this is a feminine trait, and it might well be, but I know plenty of very empathetic men and some women who are not. I think you learn humility as a woman leader, and how to be heard in a world that is not designed to listen to you."
“If you are not good at understanding people, at putting yourself in their shoes, it is unlikely that you can become a successful leader. People would end up resenting you and leaving the organization. I firmly believe that the most important element for the success of a business is PEOPLE”

“There are great people with fresh ideas that may not have the resume needed to get in the door. It’s our role as business leaders to give them the opportunities they need to grow. With the right opportunity anyone can shine,”
“Most leadership teams and boards we work with would agree with the vision of creating a true partnership, however, almost all of them struggle with how to do that. This is why our company, Heimann Cvetkovic & Partners, focuses on helping boards and management teams across the globe create strong leadership alliances”
“The role of the board has changed significantly over the past decade and even more so over the past year. Increasingly, boards are asked and challenged to be a true strategic asset to organizations, moving past the outdated mandate rooted purely in governance and oversight.”
For aspiring female leaders, I believe the best way forward and up is to say YES as often as possible. Lean into your YES, and especially do so when you are scared of facing your own self-doubt. The more you can do that, the more successes you will have, and the more successes you have, the more your confidence builds.
